So my good friend Amy over at Tomes with Tea told me about this exciting readathon hosted by G at Book Roast  based on the world of Harry Potter. Now I’m not a huge Harry Potter fan but I love the concept of reading books to “pass” exams, pointing you in a certain career path.

There’s a load of resources accompanying this readathon explaining careers and what books to read in order to pass which exams – I’d definitely go over and check out Book Roast’s video explaining the readathon.

Without further ado – here’s what I hope to read in April and the exams I hope to pass!

So these three careers particularly appealed to me and I think I’m going to try and ‘pass’ all 7 exams so I can choose which path I want to follow later on (when it comes to the NEWTs)..

Astronomer:
Exams to pass-
Arithmancy (a book written by more than one author) – Floored by Sara Barnard, Holly Bourne, Tanya Byrne, Non Pratt, Melinda Salisbury, Lisa Williamson and Eleanor Wood

Astronomy (a book with the word “Star” in the title) – What We See in the Stars by Kelsey Oseid

History of Magic (a book published at least ten years ago) – The Pale Horse by Agatha Christie

Herbologist:
Exams to pass-
Care of Magical Creatures (a book with a land animal on the cover) – Kat Wolfe Investigates by Lauren St John

Herbology (a book with a plant on the cover) – Dignity by Alys Conran

Potions (a sequel) – Closed Casket – Sophie Hannah

 

Magizoologist:
Exams to pass-
The three above plus:
Charms (an adult book) – The Doll Factory – Elizabeth Macneal

 

Are you sitting your OWLs this month? What are you reading?

Over and out,
Amy x
